Leader: Students, Academics Should Be Provided With Cultural Support

October 13, 1998
TEHRAN The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said on Monday that the Leader's representative offices at universities are providing the students and academics with intellectual and cultural support. In a meeting with the Leader's representatives at the universities, the Leader said the enemy has targeted the faith of the youth, specially that of young students in a bid to undermine the Islamic Republic. The Leader recommended his representatives at the universities to exercise insight and make coordination with students in cultural and intellectual issues and help the students find answers to their questions.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the Iranian population is young and it is a good factor in social progress and development. The enemy has targeted the faith of the youth in an attempt to strike a blow to the Islamic Republic, therefore a cultural campaign is underway between the corps of the revolution and that of the counter-revolutionaries. The Leader said those interested in Islam and the Islamic Republic should honor the youth by paving the way for their vigilant presence on the scene.
